So a weird thing happened tonight. My wife (who loves her 2014 GT) started talking to me about the new Dodge SRT Demon and it's specs. I really didn't know too much about it so I Googled it of course. I have to say it's impressive as a weekend track warrior (at least on paper, or screen).
After some reading, I question the car's ability to be a good daily driver. From what I've read so far, the thing seems to be totally in drag (pun intended).
I found myself making rationalizations as to why this wouldn't be a good car, and why the 2014 GT is much nicer to drive ANYWHERE as compared to this drag car. Was I wrong?
I suspect that a car that's totally speced for the Drag strip (comes without passenger seats front/back, drag radials, drag specific suspension, trans
-brake, line-locks, advanced launch control, and on and on...) won't be a sporty pleasure car that you just jump in and drive 300-400 miles on occasion.
It can't be a great all-purpose car like a GT. Can it? What do you guys think?
I sure hope Ford offeres up a strong Mustang (SVT or otherwise) that steals it's thunder. I'm not a Dodge fan, I've always had bad luck with Chrysler/Dodge products but on paper this thing is a beast. It even uses a special mode on the track whereby the A/C refrigerant is repurposed to chill the intercooler and reduce IAT's by as much as 45°F.
What do you guys think?
